School’s Almost Out! Summer is Now in Session

Summer is almost here, I promise! Warmer weather is on its way, and kayak season is already in full swing. There’s a lot going on at Contoocook River Canoe Co. You don’t want to miss out…

Canoe, kayak, and stand up paddleboard rentals

Rent a canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard for as long as you like at a flat rate. We don’t charge by the hour, and you get a group discount on 5 or more rentals! Paddle one of our trips on the Contoocook or Merrimack Rivers that range from 2 to 9 miles, or just paddle around where you like.   Don’t forget, if you decide to take one of our shuttle trips you need to call and make a reservation. We are also located on Glenn Lake at the Park and Recreation Building in Goffstown NH on Mast Rd.  Our number is (603) 753-9804.

Shopping for paddle sports

If you had a great time with your rental and you think it's time to own your own canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard, stop by our shop! Our store has a huge selection of standard and light weight paddle sport boats and accessories including roof rack systems. We have all the best brands and many different models of kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for the beginner to the expert. We even sell used boats, all in excellent condition. Plus, you can shop right through our website!

Paddle Sport Instruction

Are you new to paddle sports, or do you want to improve your technique? Why not get some professional lessons this summer! Check out our instructional course schedule and get signed up today. We have great prices on canoe, kayak, and paddleboard lessons.

Guided fishing trips

Looking to catch the big one?  We offer morning and evening kayak fishing trips. In our opinion, there’s no better way to enjoy nature with family or friends than out on the river catching Small Mouth Bass.

Special events at Contoocook River

We’ve got all kinds of great events that have already started. In April, we’ve got the New Hampshire Boat Show, Reel Paddling Film Festival, Discover Wild New Hampshire Day and our very own Contoocook River Canoe Co. Demo Day, just to name a few. Special events will be posted to our website every month, all summer long. Check out our Events tab to find out what’s coming up!

Even though we’ve had a long winter here in New England, that hasn’t stopped folks from getting out on the water! Summer begins when you decide it should. So start your summer off right, and come on down to Contoocook River. We can’t wait to see you!
